You know you’re in Australia when

kangaroos are having breakfast on the lawn,

there’s a sunset picnic on the beach,

P1050704

this is the only phone that works,

P1060580

beer goes with fishing,

P1110893

you’re in the middle of nowhere and a long way from anywhere,

there’s a Southern Cross windmill in the backyard,

P1050989

this is a river,

P1060192

you overtake yet another road train,

you need to look out – crocs are about,

P1060224

the beach goes forever

P1060785

your morning coffee comes with a beautiful view,

it takes a long time to go not very far,

there’s a galah in the gum tree,

  1. Oh, the Aussie salute! The flies were SO bad when I moved to Myrtleford this September. I’d almost forgotten how to do the salute. It came back, quickly.

    • At least you know all the important things, like where not to go swimming and what you should look at while drinking coffee! Our beaches and sunsets are amazing. Why don’t you come and see for yourself? You’d be very welcome.

  2. How did I miss this luscious post? I’m going to reblog it. I have your Brisbane set to come out tomorrow. If you don’t mind, I’m going to fill some of my three weeks with Carol and Leanne posts. Everyone will get to see some things I may have to miss in Australia! πŸ™‚ But they will get the best part – my friends! πŸ™‚ Three more days. Wahoo! πŸ™‚

  4. Hi! Came here from Marsha’s site and I’m glad I did. This was fun and beautiful! Thanks to you both!
    We have beer with fishing, here, too (USA) but I don’t really do either one, much. Although once I grabbed what I thought was a can of plain carbonated water from a cooler and drank the whole thing before someone asked me why, since I don’t really like beer much. Must’ve been weak stuff! πŸ˜€

    • Hello and welcome! I’m not fussed on beer either. But when we were in Salzburg and did the Steigl Brewery tour, we received three vouchers each for beers to have in the beer garden. My husband thought he was on a winner…six beers for him. But I tried their special fruity beers and loved them, so he missed out!
